Approved by the Underwriters' Laboratories. 



THE Underwriters' Laboratories of Chicago 
investigates and classifies all kinds of build- 
ing materials for the Fire Underwriters, and 
the result of these investigations is used in the 
consideration of insurance rates and classifica- 
tions. 

In main, its reports cover fire hazard, but its 
investigations also include: durability, strength, 
practicability, etc., of the product or material 
tested. 

We filed with the Underwriters' Laboratories 
a set of claims regarding Barrett Specification 
Roofs and materials. 

Their investigation of these claims, covered 
several years and included a tremendous work 
in their own testing plant in Chicago and in 
the field where a large number of old roofs 
were visited and studied. 

Their report substantiates our claims, as will 
be seen by the following excerpt: 
"Their roof coverings (Barrett Specification 
Roofs) have been shown by tests and investi- 
gations at Underwriters' Laboratories to afford 
a high degree of fire protection to roof deck ; 
to be not readily flammable and not to carry or 
communicate fire to any material extent; not 
to slip from position when heated; to possess 
little or no flying brand hazard ; to exert con- 
siderable blanketing influence upon fires within 
buildings; to be durable under service condi- 
tions for periods in excess of 10 years ; and to 
fulfill the requirements for the classification 
given." 

No wonder Barrett Specification Roofs take 
the base rate of insurance. 



Photographs taken after conflagration and re- 
produced in the Report show Barrett Specifi- 
cation Roofs with large areas still intactingutted 
buildings, constituting, with brick walls and 
large charred timber, the sole survivors of the 
fires! 

We have accepted 
theinspection ser- 
vice of the Under- 
writers' Labora- 
tories at our fac- 
tories for regular 
testing of the ma- 
terials for these 
roofs as to quality 
and weight of 
Barrett Specifica- 
tion Tarred Felt 
and Barrett Spec- 
fication Pitch, 
and henceforth 
these materials 

will carry the Underwriters' Laboratories 
label in addition to our own Specification 
label.

Architects, Engineers and Contractors are 
invited to send for full data and information 
regarding the modern method of saving on 
cost of structural steel and foundations. 

Long Span Floor Construction 
with 

NATCOHOIXOWTILE f|f!ig 

The method assures lessening of the dead 
load with conservation of maximum strength. 
Girders and pipes may be concealed in this 
form of floor construction by a very slight 
increase in thickness and dead load. 

Floors constructed of Natco Hollow Tile 
are unusually sound proof, quickly erected, 
and having the desirable flat ceiling with its 
scored surface for plastering and better re' 
flection of light.

given. And the result could not but be right.

Consulting Engineers on Lighting 

A Free Service 

Illumination from Concealed Sources. Any method of lighting whereby the 
harshly brilliant lamp filament is completely concealed from view may be correctly 
termed "Illumination from Concealed Sources." This single fact does not however 

determine the success of the installation from the stand-points of good 
lighting and art. The laws of light must be obeyed in solving any 
problem for without the requisite technical knowledge the produc- 
tion of a pre-determined lighting effect is impossible. Illuminating 
Engineering like every other profession requires years of study, 
experiment and experience, and for this reason the production of 
perfect illumination has been removed from the realm of the manu- 
facturer of merely glass and lighting fixtures. 

Indirect lighting-the EYE COMFORT System 

— is but one phase of "Illumination from Concealed Sources." 
X-Ray store window and show-case lighting, of which Boston con- 
tains hundreds of examples, — factory lighting by the direct method 
using deep-bowl X-RAY Reflectors of which the dozen or eighteen 
Ford Automobile Service Plants are examples, — flood lighting of 
buildings and monuments with the X-Ray Projector units which illum- 
inates the Woolworth Tower at night, — are all similarly classified. 

The EYE COMFORT (Indirect) LIGHTING System is 

itself sub-divided into lighting from hanging bowls — from cornices — from art lamps — 
from urns, vases and pedestals — and in fact from any place wherein the scientifically 
designed X-RAY Reflector equipment may be correctly installed. Reflectors of special 
shape have been designed for each of these methods of lighting.

Place the National X-Ray Reflector Company's Portfolio of Lighting Details 

in your library as a quick, concise reference work. You will like the thoroughness and the crisp clearness 
with which the subject of interior lighting is handled in this portfolio. 

So much lighting equipment has been marketed mainly to sell, without regard to highest efficiency, 
economy, and perfect lighting results, that this book will undoubtedly be highly appreciated by the architec- 
tural profession who demand facts in easily comprehensible form. 

Bound into a strong cover 12 x 15 inches, is a 52 page book 
and a set of 36 detail plates (loose). Dozens of prominent installa- 
tions of every conceivable kind and class are described with data. 
Methods of calculating installations of the scientifically correct EYE 
COMFORT (indirect) Lighting System, X-RAY Show Window 
Reflectors, X-RAY Reflectors for direct lighting purposes and Curtis 
Portable Lamps are given. Tables, rules and charts are presented 
in the simplest form to in every way facilitate the laying out of in- 
terior illumination. 

A generous profusion of exteriors lends an added value. 

No phrase of modern illumination has been omitted. It is the 
only available publication of its kind. It is inspirational; it is 
authoritative; it is complete.

That is the way three-fourths of the roofing tile 
specifications read the country over. 

Wherever roofing tiles are used, tile with Ludowici- 
Celadon Company stamped on the back is known as the 
standard and is recognized as an honest piece of goods. 

We are grateful to the architectural profession which now demands not 
only the Ludowici-Celadon standard as to 
tiles but also insists upon the installation of 
tiles in accordance with our exacting speci-

You may sometimes tell a customer that you can 
specify a cheaper boiler — but you never tell him that 
you can specify anything better than a 

MILLS WATER TUBE BOILER 




Water tubes located in 
the fire box give great ca- 
pacity because they are 
direct fire surface and be- 
cause they divide the water 
into small streams which 
heat quickly. The water 
tube sections are carried 
down to the level of the 
grate; extending them below 
this point gains nothing, but 
invites troubles from uneven 
heating. 



The idea behind the powerful, 
efficient boilers used in ocean 
steamships and big power plants 
is the water tube. The Mills 
stands out conspicuously among 
heating boilers because of its 
water tubes and drum and nipple 
construction. 




HJewyorK 



THESE ARE COLD 
FACTS REGARD- 
IN G HE ATIN G 

BOILERS 



Drums or headers insure 
dry steam, and in water 
boilers the drums take hot 
water direct and quickly 
from each section. The 
circulation is perfect. 

Outside Screw Nipple 

Connections are more re- 
liable, more durable than 
inside push nipples, and 
always accessible. They 
can't burn out.

WATSON REDUCING VALVE 

With Lever and Weight 

For steam heating or other places requiring 

low, steady pressure 

This valve is adapted for places carrying a boiler 
pressure of 200 lbs. or less, and will reduce to any 
pressure from 1 to 25 or 30 lbs. on low pressure side. 



This valve is metal through- 
out all its parts; nothing 
complicated. It will outlast 
any other reducing valve 
made. 



NO PACKING IS USED ANYWHERE 



The only inside and movable part of this valve is the 
piston ; this can be taken out to clean without break- 
ing any pipe joints, and it does not require a skilled 
mechanic to perform this operation. 
There are more of these valves in use than any 
other form. 




FOR STEAM ONLY 



OUR STEAM TRAPS 



Have large outlet valves, not likely to be flooded from 
sudden flushes of water, and they do not blow steam. 
They are a credit to the architect and appreciated by the 
engineer. We also manufacture Reducing Valves for 
all purposes, Separators for High Pressure Steam. Ex- 
haust Head, Relief Valves, Ejectors and Suction Tees.

E point with pride to the fact that most of the prominent buildings in Manhattan's world- 
famous skyline, are decorated (many of them exclusively) with 



Dutch Boy White Lead 



Certainly there must be some logical reason for this consistent selection on the part of 
architects and building managers. Experience, we suspect, has proved that no other paint

JENKINS BROS. VALVES 

The quality that comes from more than 50 years of 
concentration in the manufacture of valves explains 
why Jenkins Bros. Valves are the choice of those 

architects who recognize the valve equipment as a perma- 
nent part of the building, and who specify on the basis of 
service-giving capacity. 
There is a Jenkins Bros. Valve for every purpose, including 
plumbing work. The line includes globe, angle, cross, check and gate valves. 
In addition to the well-known line of radiator valves, parti- 
cular attention is called to the special types suitable for all 
classes of steam circulation and air return systems, includ- 
ing differential check valves, automatic impulse check 
valves, and the Jenkins Bros. Fractional Radiator Valves.

ASSUMING you are conversant with the fact that the glories of extant examples of Babylonian 
and contemporary architecture are due to the employment of Burnt Clay; as, also, with 
the Economic and Aesthetic possibilities of Architectural Terra Cotta, (which is but The 
Burnt Clay of the ancients mixed and burned by superior modern methods); this card is simply to 
remind you that we Estimate, MAKE and Ship conscientiously IN ACCORDANCE with 
YOUR SPECIFICATIONS ; hence, solicit the privilege of estimating this material wherever its 
employment may be indicated in YOUR WORK.

BAY STATE 
BRICK AND CEMENT COATING 

This coating not only waterproofs concrete and 
stucco walls, but it equalizes the color. Overcomes the 
blotched effect of rain. Gives an artistic dull surface, 
but doesn't mar the texture of the concrete or stucco. 

Many of the country's leading architects specify 
Bay State Brick and Concrete Coating — their reasons 
why are given in our free booklet. Write for it.
